This little gem of a museum can be enjoyed in an hour, but you may want to budget a bit more time if you want the detail offered in the exhibits and time to shop for gifts in the shop. Don't miss the movie ---- it's short, high quality, and will leave you with a good understanding of John Wesley Powell's accomplishments. It's entertaining for children as well as adults. In fact ,all of the museum should entertain children as well as adults. There are a variety of interactive displays, an animated - and talking - JW Powell explaining his journey, and in the lower level - dinosaurs!
Another word about the gift shop - it has a lovely selection, very nicely displayed and very, reasonably priced.
